“A wonderful thing about drawing a line is that it can be any number of things. These drawings are some possible representations of the idea of a line. One line is not necessarily any more important or informative than any other line, but if it is assigned a representative value, it can become important, it becomes symbolic. Strictly speaking, a line is a geometrical object that is straight, infinitely long and infinitely thin. A line is one-dimensional. It has zero width (in mathematics). If you draw a line with a pencil, the pencil mark has a measurable width. The pencil line is in some ways just a means to illustrate the idea of a line on paper. The line drawn on paper is always only at first, just a representation of the idea of a line. In this sense, we can really only imagine the idea of a line, it can not be seen with our eyes directly, but indirectly, as an approximate representation. A line as an idea drawn, is I think, a beautiful thing in all of its imperfect representation.” Matt Niebuhr
